4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draught Fast gone greige head over red-brown shot black beer. Nice whisky & wood nose, and fruity esters mixing with alcoholic features, to a very complex aromaprofile indeed. Taste is blue mold cheese, vinous rather than spirit. Again the character is complex, with many fruity vectors. Backthroar real alcoholheat. Not really full bodied, and a tad undercarbonated. Ends with beautiful long-lasting main flavours. Gives the impression of being based upon Oud Bruin. Excellent try - again. Long, deep, complex beer that is very difficult to catch in words.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled@HBF2015. Pretty much black colour, with a mediumsized brown head, that leaves some lace. Aroma is wood, some mild peated notes as well as some liquorice and mild wooden sourness to it as well. Flavour is liquorice, some wood, mild smoked notes as well as some burnt sugar and a mild sour wooden edge to it. Tasty, but I couldn’t figure out if the slight sour edge is a planned thing, or something spontaneous happening...

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a black beer with a medium, beige head.
Smells malty, some chocolate, some coffee, some oak.
Tastes malty, slightly bitter.
Leaves a gentle bitter palate. Some oak and some of the roasted malts come trough in the aftertaste.
Good beer but nothing to exciting.

Unclear dark brown beer with a creamy head that disappears quickly, high carbonation.
Tastes like caramel, sour, smoke, wood, coffee and a little whiskey.
Complex beer with lots of different flavors no standard stout.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice label. The beer is brown in color and the head is dissapearing quickly. Overall it’s not a bad beer but it’s highly dissapointing. It has very little to do with an English or US stout. It is watery in texture with quite strong carbonation. It has dry like clove flavor which is completly outside this style. The chocolate and other torrified aromas and flavors are very delicate. We get the whisky game though. It reminds a bit a cocacola with a hint of whisky to be honest.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Noire de noire, effervescence très faible au palais, col beige foncé moyen. Principalement maltée, légèrement surette, vineuse, moka présent, raisin noir, un peu de chocolat, plus une vieille brune qu’un stout.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Black color with big head. Slightly sour, chalky aroma. Taste is very dry and metallic. Roasted malts. Very astringent in its metallicness. No barrel feeling... Not exactly my kind of beer. Plus it was served way too cold :(
